How many can I drink per day?
We recommend the following as a guide, but we always recommend you consult your health professional to determine suitability for your individual needs and health records. Pre Pregnancy – 1-3 Aquamamma per day. During Pregnancy – 1-3 Aquamamma per day (9 months). Labour – 1 Aquamamma per hour. After Pregnancy / Breastfeeding – 1-3 Aquamamma per day (6-12 months).
Can I drink these while taking prenatal vitamins?
Aquamamma contains a small amount of folic acid (37.5 micrograms per 250ml Drink and 20 microgram per Sachet) which is designed to help meet your daily requirements but not to replace your daily supplements. Consuming 1-3 Aquamammas per day in conjunction with your prenatal vitamin adheres to the Recommended Dietary Intake for prenatal women. We cannot advise on your individual needs so we always recommend you consult your healthcare professional to determine your folic acid and supplementation needs.
Why is hydration so important?
Hydration is always important but for women who are trying to get pregnant, who are pregnant, or who have just given birth - it is vital. During this time, your body's working overtime to create and keep a tiny human alive. That takes A LOT of energy. So your body requires more fluid than usual. If you don’t keep your fluids up you can become dehydrated, which could have an adverse impact on your health and even the health of your baby.
How much fluid should I be drinking each day?
Pregnant women should aim to drink 2.3 litres (around 10-12 glasses) of fluid each day and for breastfeeding women it’s 2.6 litres (around 12 – 15 glasses). If you’re vomiting, exercising or living in heat this could be even more.
